If this is for cockpit drains, I suggest that you eliminate the "T" entirely, and bore another hole - meaning that you'll need another manly pile of bronze. By using a "T" you are effectively cutting the total draining capacity in half, and doubling the time that it would take to empty the cockpit, and doubling likelyhood of a plugged drain.That sounds like good advice, fewer hoses and fittings below the waterline.
It would take some heft away from my manly pile of bronze though
I suppose the thing to do would be to have both cockpit drains go right to a 90º pointed towards a T in the middle. That hose could be supported to the floor of the cockpit and they'd meet in a T and there'd only be one hose going down below the waterline. I may have to order more stuff.
